Modeler12 Posted February 1, 2015 Share #1 Posted February 1, 2015 (edited) I had a heck of a time belaying lines to the pinrail on the other side. Bent tweezers and other gadgets just didn't do it for my clumsy fingers. Here is what I did. I took some brass wire, made two V shaped hooks at the end and silver soldered them to the side of a thicker wire. The idea is that I wanted to push the line underneath and behind the belaying pin. I spaced the two wires such that they cleared the pin. Now with the line slack on the deck, I can push the line with this two pronged tool as shown in the sketches below. Once there, I pull the line taut and hook it to the pin on top. I had success the first time I tried it.
